Product Description

An Artist's Book by Eve Sonneman and Lawrence Weiner

Exchanges with Sonneman are sharp and oblique, and each hones the other’s imagery....” —Art on Paper

World famous conceptual artist Lawrence Weiner and equally famed photographer Eve Sonneman have jointly produced what accurately may be regarded as a marriage of text and pictures. Weiner's signature rubber stamp art work takes a uniquely literal turn by gracing, or "stamping," Sonneman's photographs, the first time his work has ever appeared in the context of another artist's work. Sonneman's seemingly straightforward snapshots oscillate between foreground and background matter, at the service of the stamps, and serve as a perfect foil for Weiner's glib, sometimes post-ironic definitions of first-glance image content.
